Geocache Description:

Stora Torget i Borås

Vid koordinaterna står en byst av Borås grundare Gustav den II Adolf, strax intill finns en karta över hur staden såg ut ungefär 1650. Mitt på torget står torgbrunnen byggd 1940, och motivet är forna tiders arbetsliv i bygden. På torgets östra sida står rådhuset, invigt 1910, som ersatte det rådhus som stod ungefär vid startkoordinaterna.

För att logga cachen som found ska du utföra följande uppgifter:

1: Vid waypoint 1 finns en karta på marken, du ska räkna antalet stenar som bildar Viskan. En del stenar har spruckit, men räkna som om de är hela.

2: Vid waypoint 2 finns torgbrunnen, där ska du räkna antalet djur som finns avbildade på den runda kopparkanten.

3: FRIVILLIGT! Ta en bild på dig själv någonstans på torget och bifoga den i loggen.

Skicka svaren till CO och logga cachen som found, du behöver inte invänta svar från mig innan du loggar.


The big square of Borås

At the coordinates you will find a map of Borås on the ground as the town was shaped around 1650. You will also find a bust of Gustav Adolf the 2nd who founded the town in 1621. In the middle of the square stands the fountain called "Torgbrunnen" and on the east side of the square you can see the Town Hall, built in 1910.

To log the cache as Found you need to solve these tasks:

1: At waypoint 1 there is a map on the ground, count the number of stones that form the river "Viskan". Some stones are cracked, but count them as if they are whole.

2: At waypoint 2 you need to count the number of animals depicted on the round copper edge of the fountain.

3: OPTIONAL! Take a picture of yourself somewhere on the square and add it to the log.

Send your answers to CO and log the cache as found, you don´t have to wait for my answer to log.
